NISSAN NAVARA Used Car Review

The Nissan Navara is one of the best-known utes on sale in Australia, having been around since the 1980s. The Japanese brand was offering both a D22 and a slightly larger D40 model for some years before a new-generation Navara was introduced in 2015. Dubbed NP300 publicly and D23 internally, the new Navara is notable for featuring car-like coil springs on its rear suspension rather than the load-carrying-focused leaf springs traditionally found in workhorse utes.

Pros

Cons

  • Improved ride and handling of latest model
  • Strong performance of D40 generation's STX V6 diesel
  • Great reliability of D22 turbo diesel
  • Roomy cabins of old D40 and current model
  • Inconsistent ride quality of pre-Series III models
  • Ground clearance relatively low for segment
  • Steering wheel lacks height adjustment
  • Relatively weak petrol engine (though base model only)
This is general information and should not be relied on as purchasing advice.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: NISSAN NAVARA (D40 - 2005 to 2014)

There are lots of these about as the Navara was extremely popular in the day. But things aren't quite as rosy now and the D40 Navara has some areas to check very closely.

That starts with the underbody which lacked a bit of protection for hard off-roading. The radiator also hangs below the lowest part of the chassis rails on the D40, so a damaged radiator is common. The driveshaft was alloy, not steel, and could be bent when jumping over rocks and trees off-road.

Clutches can give trouble thanks to a combination of a physically small clutch and a dual-mass flywheel, so make sure any Navara engages gears smoothly and easily, especially when cold.

The turbo diesel engine is generally okay, but 160,000km or so seems to be the point at which many Navaras develop timing-chain stretch or camshaft wear.

Be very careful with a Navara that has travelled more than that distance and know that many will hit the market at this point on the advice of the owner's mechanic.
